Dry Marble - Take Two

Hello everyone. Hope you're having a great Saturday! I had a fun day of doing absolutely nothing. Hubby and I watched the move "Take Me Home Tonight" an 80's based romantic comedy. It was pretty funny and reminiscent of my college years of partying. I wish I could go back there again, lol.

I had a lot of free time today since I'm caught up on most of my school work (for a change) so I played with dry marbling again. Someone had asked about using cheap-y polishes so I tried them out for this marble. I did three different combinations but this one turned out the best. I think the foil polish really adds a little somethin' extra to it. I'm gonna save the other two and try them out later.

The colors I used are: Wet N Wild Bar-B (light pink), LA Colors Electrified (pink foil), Wet N Wild Jubilee (medium purple) and Arissa dark purple shimmer (no name).

I applied them the same was as in the marble tutorial. Yes, it does looks like a Laffy Taffy (ha ha).

Here's what they look like on a Ziploc bag. I tried to make them look similar to a water marble. I only used 1 and a half rows for a complete mani. I'm saving the others for next time.

We'll I hope you're having a fun night. I gotta go hang out with Hubby. Thanks for stopping by!
